Has anyone successfully gotten DIRECTV Anywhere to work on their MAC. I can stream trailers but I get an error when attempting to watch a program. The error states streaming is not available at this time.

OS X 10.7.3
Safari 5.1.4

Running same software level and browser level as you and it works for me. I streamed a program off of the Audience network and it worked flawlessly.

It was a bit of a PITA to get it going. First it wanted to download and install the DirecTV Anywhere app, and then the first run had to register it automagically. I started at the DTV website and logged in and followed the prompts.

It does work for me and I am pleased with its performance.

Receiver : DirecTV Genie HR44-700, Dish Hopper w/Sling
HDTV : Mitsi WD-73742 73" 3D DLP
Surround: Denon AVR-2113ci 7.1 Setup
